Mu­sikfor­um


Home arena to the Bo­chum sym­phony or­ches­tra

It is called sec­u­lar­iz­a­tion when a new pur­pose is ad­ded to an old church. The con­ver­sion of the former St. Mari­en church to the An­neliese Brost Mu­sic­al for­um shows that this can be done ar­chi­tec­tur­ally de­mand­ing, cost-ef­fect­ively and cul­tur­al-polit­ic­ally. It is now home ground to the Bo­chum Sym­phony Or­ches­tra, who used to primar­ily play at the Ruhr Uni­versity?s Audimax be­fore. If the El­b­phil­har­monie in Ham­burg is char­ac­ter­ized by a sense of mis­sion, this stands for act­ive prag­mat­ism: A lot of money was raised by Bo­chum cit­izens to real­ize the pro­ject. The vi­cin­ity to the night­life dis­trict Ber­muda3Eck can be un­der­stood as a sym­bol­ic­al bridge build­ing to the city.
